Evaluation methods

Good evaluation of your CEPA work is one of the most important activities that you can carry out, but also one of the most difficult. Showing that your CEPA activities lead to changes in behaviour and positive outcomes for conservation is not an easy task. Many of our activities will have very long-term, cumulative and sometimes unexpected results, but the better we understand them, the better we can plan and deliver our future work.

Good evaluation requires extensive planning, time, resources, and qualified staff.
